I read an article today that got me thinking about the nature of “News” and what it means to be delivered news through the normal channels, such as newspapers, television, radio, etc.
I think that we are so used to be TOLD what is news that we have nearly forgotten what it means to experience and report on events ourselves.
We need to embrace this medium and expand it! It is a legitimate form of reporting on news through the eyes of the beholder. It doesn’t pretend to be something unbiased or objective (since NOTHING is!). We don’t need an institution like a media network to tell us what is news. Sure, they have the connections and the people in the all the hotpots (supposedly), but what about hearing the news unfiltered through the eyes of the people that are living in the hotspots?
Wouldn’t it be nice to judge for ourselves what is and is not the TRUTH?!
